    Roger Goodell is on record wanting to shorten the length of NFL games. League-wide games are averaging just under 3.5 hours, which is apparently too long for the Commissioners liking.

    Some solutions may include:
    • GPS tracking system that can accurately spot the ball faster than the officials can
    • Less commercials
    • Better replay system
    • Less penalties called

    Week 11 Roundtable: Shorten the Game, Pick the Champs

    Any other great ideas or should Goodell stop tinkering with the game?

    commercials are the biggest issue.. kickoff -> commercial -> score -> commercial -> another kickoff -> commercial

    that's a ****ing ridiculous sequence for every scoring instance.. add in random "timeouts" for commercials.. it's a joke

    yea the breaks in play just to show advertisements is the biggest problem

    but it seems counter productive for the league to cut out the guys paying them millions...

    but Id love to see less commercials from a fans standpoint ..

    Like said above, too many breaks and commercials. but then again apparently that would speed up the game too fast. the defense needs more time to think otherwise it's a gimmick.

    Penalties, injuries and commercials caused the Titans game this past Sunday to be at a dead standstill in the first Quarter. Even hard to watch in replay so live had to be atrocious.

    The play clock will likely get changed before anything else does and I don't really like that idea
